Are you sure that it is gone? make sure the all the bushing on the transmission are good it maybe that it is not able to go all the way in gear. If you do need to take it out get a good manual "Bentley" are the best it will show you the inside of the transmission too. Haynes are also good but not for working on the transmission it self

Reverse or first gear are both about the same gear ratio, low, to be more specific, and getting into those gears, although you're only having a problem with one,is an indication that the clutch is getting worn and not throwing out enough. This is gennerally caused by the fingers on the pressure plate wearing and warping over the years. I can only assume you've never had to replace the clutch so far correct? Considering the vehicles 14th birthday is just passed it may be time.

You may have some excessive play in the shifter bushings or the shifter lever itself. Also check the shifter linkage to the transmission to see if everything is connected.
